An Upper Peninsula priest is under investigation amid allegations of sexual misconduct nearly 50 years ago.

Father Frank Lenz, a retired priest with the Diocese of Marquette, has been placed on administrative leave after a report was filed with the diocese accusing Lenz of sexual misconduct with a minor dating back to the 1970s.

The report was then taken to the Marquette County prosecutor.

Lenz has denied the accusations.

However, he has been removed from all public priestly ministry as the investigation into the allegations continues.
